  • 25 oz. 750 g green cabbage
  • 5 oz. 150 g butter
  • 20 oz. 600 g ground beef
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 2 2 garlic clovegarlic cloves
  • 3 3 scallion, in slicesscallions, in slices
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp fresh ginger, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp sesame oil
Wasabi mayonnaise
  • 1 cup 225 ml mayonnaise
  • ½ - 1 tbsp ½ - 1 tbsp wasabi paste


  1. Shred the cabbage finely using a sharp knife or a food processor.
  2. Fry the cabbage in 2–3 ounces (60–90 g) butter in a large frying or wok pan on medium-high heat, but don't let the cabbage turn brown. It takes a while for the cabbage to soften.
  3. Add spices and vinegar. Stir and fry for a couple of minutes more. Put the cabbage in a bowl.
  4. Melt the rest of the butter in the same frying pan. Add garlic, chili flakes and ginger and sauté for a few minutes.
  5. Add ground meat and brown until the meat is thoroughly cooked and most of the juices have evaporated. Lower the heat a little.
  6. Add scallions and cabbage to the meat. Stir until everything is hot. Add salt and pepper to taste, and top with the sesame oil before serving.
  7. Mix together the wasabi mayonnaise by starting with a small amount of wasabi and adding more until the flavor is just right. Serve the stir-fry warm with a dollop of wasabi mayonnaise on top.

    I live in Ghana West Africa and I would love to lose weight by following the plan. However most of the recipes are foreign and a bit difficult to consume. Can u help?

    I loved this! I added a little more chilli powder and found it quite filling and tasty.
  3. Aditya
    Would it be possible for changing the recipe, replacing the beef with cottage cheese specifically? How would that affect the nutrition component.
  4. Dan
    How about olive or another oil
  5. Els
    Delicious... forgot the sesame oil, but I will use that tomorrow, when I eat this for lunch. Used half-half ground beef-pork, very tasty. The wasabi-mayo is a winner!

    Loved it- it was like the taste of a kebab. The wasabi mayo was unexpectedly amazing and complemented it perfectly. Yes, it was greasy but so is a kebab.

    they have the options for US or Metric conversions on the recipe page. 25oz is approximately 3 cups or 750g :)

    Is the wasabi mayonnaise necessary? I don’t like mayo and adding wasabi won’t make it better. I wondered if I need this as a fat and what can be substituted?
